Marathwada and Vidarbha: Light rain in some districts (Ch. Sambhajinagar, Jalna, Nanded, Hingoli, Yavatmal, Beed, Amravati, Akola, Buldhana, Nagpur, Chandrapur, Gadchiroli). Few regions can get moderate showers/thundershowers (maybe slightly heavier for eastern Vidarbha), but not well distributed.

Eastern and northeastern parts of the country will see active Monsoon conditions with moderate to heavy rain for eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, parts of West Bengal, Sikkim and the northeastern states. 

Due to very weak Monsoon conditions in Kerala, Tamil Nadu will continue to benefit from scattered thundershowers.

Drought in Kerala worsens...

The El Nino (warming of surface waters) in the Pacific Ocean has weakened the westerly winds, and the cyclone formations in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal just ahead of the monsoon could have adversely affected monsoon rainfall in Kerala, the IMD director explained.

"Now it is the break monsoon period as the monsoon trough is now located somewhere over the Odisha coast. This may further move towards the Himalayas, bringing more rain to the North-Northeast region and Nepal and taking the rain away from our region," Santhosh said.

Kerala is now pinning its hopes on the Northeast Monsoon, which is expected between October and December.
